Michael Leisner has died. You may not know him, but Leisner became very famous recently when his protest of General Mills gained national attention and a criminal probe. Leisner set fire to a bunch of Cheerios which then ended up on the lawn of General Mills’ headquarters in Minnesota. The video went viral.
The police investigation into the incident is now closed. He died Saturday of a heart attack at the age of 65, and funeral arrangements have been made for Friday at the Emmanuel Christian Center. Apparently, Leisner was waiting for two of his children to finish playing tennis when he had a heart attack in the car and died.
